Good Morning! This is our House Band week and, as fate would have it, something fell right in our laps that we absolutely must take advantage of. However, you’ll all have to read on to find out what it is!
Here’s Thursday’s musical landscape:
11:00 a.m. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Live at The Fillmore, San Francisco, Recorded January 10-February 7, 1997
If you’re a Pettyhead, and I am, you learned yesterday that there is a new piece of musical magic coming from beyond life on this earth. On November 25, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Live at The Fillmore box set will be released. Yes, our order is already in, folks and we eagerly anticipate delivery. However, we do have a previous release from that residency that’s pretty special and we are airing it here to day in celebration and anticipation!
4:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Sunshine Superman by Donovan
We’re on our next-to-last airing here. This is Donovan at his most psychedelic as we continue our obsession with psychedelic music this month. Who knows where this will go next, but get this one in. Our final airing will be sometime on Saturday.
7:00 p.m. The Beatles Live From the Apple Records Rooftop, London, UK, January 30, 1969
Yes, the complete concert is here for your listening pleasure. It isn’t lengthy, but it is pretty fantastic, and it is the final live performance from the fab four before the split. We think it’s fitting that we open and close our programming today with our two House Bands. We’ve got a bit more in the hopper from them as the week progresses.
This is a great day to tune us in. What could be better? We’ve got The Beatles and Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers together on the same day, and both are ‘live’ performances. Yeah, I’d say that’s a reason to join your friends from around the globe.
